Feeling anxious is completely normal and every one of us feels anxious every now and then. We all feel nervous when we are presented with a difficult problem at work, before making an important decision, or before we take a test. However, anxiety disorders are a completely different case because it is actually a group or cluster of mental illnesses.

The distress caused by these mental illnesses affects your lifestyle, makes you feel depressed, and it entirely prevents you from having a normal life. If you are regularly feeling sad or depressed without any reason, it is best to get in touch with the experienced care providers at our free womens clinic for help. Below are a few types of anxiety disorders.

Panic Disorder

Panic disorders are random and sudden episodes of intense worry or fear that instantly triggers severe physical reactions in a person with no apparent cause or real danger. When you are having a panic attack, you might feel the following things:

  • Losing control
  • Heart Attack
  • Dying

Social Anxiety Disorder

Social anxiety disorder, also known as social phobia, makes a person feel self-conscious and makes him/her overwhelmingly worried about daily social situations. The affected person fixates about others judging them or on being ridiculed or embarrassed.

Specific Phobias

Women and men who suffer from this condition often feel intense fear of a situation or object such as flying or heights. The triggered fear sometimes extends beyond what is appropriate, which in turn forces the affected individuals to stay away from even normal day-to-day situations.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

People with generalized anxiety disorder find it hard or impossible to control their fears and worries. They expect the worst in all situations even when there is no need for the concern. Shockingly, studies say that around 7 million adults out of the entire population in the country have fallen prey to this severe disorder.

Even though the symptoms of anxiety disorders can vary from one person to another, people with anxiety disorders usually share more than a few general symptoms such as:

  • Uneasiness, panic, and fear
  • Sleeping issues
  • Unable to stay still, calm, and relaxed
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dry mouth
  • Nausea
  • Heart palpitations
  • Dizziness

If you keep on having any of the above-mentioned symptoms, get in touch with our free womens clinic as soon as possible. We will put forward an effective treatment plan to help you cope with the disorders you are experiencing.
